    Okay I'm looking for some mellow hip hop. Bordering on trip but still in the hip hop realm.

    if you can name a group or two it would be appreciated.

    Mos Def, the new De La Soul AOI series (two of the three are out) are totally killer, Talib Kweli and Hi Tek (Reflection Eternal) fo' sho'...check out some of the stuff on the Ninja Tune label too like Vadim

    Seriously though, if you're into chill-laid-back hip-hop, check out this guy "Necro" outta New York.

    Have you seen the "I need drugs" video? That video is cold.

    laid back hiphop: reflection eternal, earlier roots albums, madlib, tribe, OutKast - Atliens, Pete Rock - Petestrumentals, Jay Dee - Welcome 2 Detroit, dj Cam...

    some of the above are albums. very chill, nice relaxed laid back shit.

    hmm, I've only heard one of their tunes, but I'm pretty sure the Pocket Dwellers could fall into this category

    at the last dilated peoples show @ the opera house, there was a really talented group called Source of Labour


    they are a live hip hop band, wikkid mc, dude on drums, dude on bass and dude on keyboards. anyone who saw them there or heard them before would attest to their goodness.

    Does anyone know if the female rapper WhatWhat has done any work other than those few tracks with Herbalizer? Those rhymes drip like honey from her lips.
